2018 Vales Edge Cabernet Sauvignon
Vales Edge is located at the very southeast corner of the Alexander Valley AVA. This unique location has coined the name “Vales Edge,” a poetic way of saying “Edge of the Valley.” The vineyard consists of two different small blocks, each lending a different and important component to the resulting wine.
Violet and blue fruits are out on display, with interesting notes of blackberry compote, rooibos tea and cardamom. It exhibits the classic Cabernet notes of black currant and graphite on the palate and is defined by its incredibly elegant persistence. An expressive wine full of energy from start to finish, the abundance of aromatics will continue to surprise and delight. Cellar recommendation: now through 2040.
